Developed a slow release nanogel formulation of methoxy benzene and the technology was tested in white grub endemic areas of Rajasthan and perfected. This slow release Nanogel formulation is effective in aggregation of beetles up to one month and, thus, avoiding replacement of septa daily. The cost of per sample is ₹ 10 only.
Isolated the synthetic pheromone (1,2 1,3 and 1,4 diethyl benzene) of Holotrichia seticollis through Gas chromatography Mass spectrometry (GC-MS)
A commercial talc based formulation of Bacillus cereus WGPSB2
A two pronged strategy of white grub management through use of VL white grub beetle trap-1 and Entomopathogenic bacteria (Bacillus cereus WGPSB2)
Food poison bait technique for management of cut worm infesting vegetables.
Developed Crowbar technique of biopesticides application
For the management of soil arthropods in groundnut crop, soil application of Neem cake@250kg/ha, seed treatment with Imidacloprid 600 FS @ 6.5 ml per kg seed, application of Beauveria bassiana –0.5g/m 2 and application of imidacloprid 17.8 SL@ 300 ml/ha at 20-25 DAS is most effective.
Application of Clothianidin 50 WDG @ 1g/lit. of water against termites in preserved setts of sugarcane.
Use of oil based bait (Rice bran oil + Boric acid @ 50:50 parts) to attract red ants, Dorylus orientalis in Potato for rabi crops of Assam.
For the management of termite in groundnut crop, seed treatment with Imidacloprid 600 FS @ 6.5 ml per kg seed is most effective.
For the management of termite in chickpea, seed treatment with Imidacloprid 600FS @ 6 ml per kg seed is most effective.
For the management of termite in chickpea, drenching the crop with Imidacloprid 17.8 SL @ 360 ml or Fipronil 40% +Imidacloprid 40% per ha is most effective.
For beetle management slow release “Nano gel formulation is effective in aggregation of beetles up to one month.
